2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup Coca-Cola
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
6 tbsp Coca-Cola
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 1/4 cup roasted and salted pecans, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.
In a medium-sized, microwave safe bowl, butter. Whisk cocoa powder in to hot butter. When smooth, stir in Coca-Cola. Allow to cool. Whisk in eggs, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Pour into flour mixture and stir until well combined and no streaks of flour remain. Stir in mini marshmallows.
Pour into prepared pan. Marshmallows may float to the top.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly pressed.
While cake bakes, prepare the glaze. Combine butter, Coke and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Whisk in confectioners sugar until smooth, then stir in the pecans. Pour glaze all over cake when it comes out of the oven.
Allow cake to cool before slicing.
